Zootopia

From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew, the city of Zootopia is a mammal metropolis where various animals live and thrive. When Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. Determined to prove herself, Judy jumps at the opportunity to solve a mysterious case. Unfortunately, that means working with Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), a wily fox who makes her job even harder.

  • Overall: 9/10

  • Graphics: 8/10
  • Sound: 8/10

The story has multiple layers.. simple and easy to watch for the kids (though still a few scary bits for the super little ones..), and at the same time a deeper layer for adults..

The world starts like you’d expect from a Disney cartoon and then takes a twist.

There is humour.

There are unexpected moments.

This is fun, easy and you’ll leave going.. that was worth it.

Frozen Movie 3D

Disney Frozen Trailer

For those of us that love animated movies and in particular Disney movies, Frozen looks like a lot of fun.

The main characters are strong women (from the trailer) who live in a world that brings magic, fantasy and roles together. In short a Disney movie..

The animation looks great and plot looks to have enough to take the interest of boys and girls, mums and dads alike.

The snowman come alive is sure to be a favourite with the kids.

Let us know what you think..

Monsters Inc 3d

One of the movies that was a turning point for the genres has come back for the Xmas season (and to help with the marketing of Monsters University) and this time it’s in 3D.

If you know the movie already there will be some obvious places where 3D has the potential to have a big impact – the scare scenes, the door chase, etc..

We saw the movie in a great cinema and with our favourite 5 year old film reviewer (he hadn’t seen the movie in 2D).

The film still has the same surprises and characters that will enchant many.

Our 5 year old jumped in places and maybe caused by the 3d genuinely got “upset” in parts.

Does the 3D make the movie.. well when we compare with Life of Pi which would not have been the same movie in 2D by any shape of the imagination, I don’t personally feel that Monster’s Inc 3d was really that much of a step forward.

Perhaps it was the screen, or the mood, overall yes a great movie – though somehow it felt “darker” this time around (and yes we’ve seen it many many times before…)

It’s interesting to think back the history of Pixar, especially with the legacy of Steve Jobs and the other impacts happening globally.

We’ve seen the future and the future is holographics (http://www.THEfutureINadvance.com) and watching a movie like Monsters Inc in that format would be truly life changing.

ps

Our 5 year old did ask an interesting question – why do people love 3d so much?

Be warned you will walk by the Disney store and the merchandise is back in force…
